- 1. We didn't lie to you, folks.
- 2. We told you we had living,
- 3. You laughed at them, shuddered at them...
- 4. and yet, but for the accident of birth...
- 5. you might be even as they are.
- 6. They did not ask
to be brought into the world...
- 7. but into the world they came.
- 8. Their code is a law unto themselves.
- 9. Offend one...
- 10. and you offend them all.
- 11. And now, folks,
if you'll just step this way...
- 12. you are about to witness
the most amazing...
- 13. the most astounding living monstrosity...
- 14. of all time.
- 15. Friends...
- 16. she was once a beautiful woman.
- 17. A royal prince shot himself
for love of her.
- 18. She was known as the peacock of the air.
- 19. Oh, she is magnificent, isn't she, Hans?
- 20. She's the most beautiful big woman
I have ever seen.
- 21. Why, Hans, how you talk.
- 22. I should be jealous pretty soon.
- 23. - Don't be silly.
- Don't be silly?
- 24. I've seen these women
making eyes at my Hans.
- 25. Of course, I ain't jealous.
- 26. Frieda, my dear...
- 27. I have eyes for only one woman...
- 28. the woman I asked to be my wife.
- 29. Fraulein Frieda?
- 30. I have tightened the belly band.
- 31. That's much better.
It was always slipping. Thank you.
- 32. Are you laughing at me?
- 33. - Why, no, monsieur.
- Thanks. I'm glad.
- 34. - Why should I laugh at you?
- Most big people do.
- 35. They don't realize I'm a man
with the same feelings they have.
- 36. Thank you.
- 37. You are so kind, monsieur.
- 38. - Nice.
- 39. You must come to see me sometime,
and we'll have a little wine together.
- 40. Thank you, Fraulein Cleo.
- 41. You're getting old, Jean.
- 42. Probably, last night you had too heavy
a dinner, and now your imagination is—
- 43. But, Monsieur Duval,
at first I could not believe my own eyes.
- 44. A lot of horrible, twisted things,
you know, crawling, whining, laughing—
- 45. Be done, Jean.
What were you drinking last night?
- 46. Nothing, monsieur, I assure you.
- 47. Monsieur, there must be a law in France
to smother such things at birth...
- 48. - or lock them up.
- All right, Jean.
- 49. If there's anything like you say
on my grounds, we'll have it removed.
- 50. - Come on, let's go.
- All of you! Tout de suite!
- 51. Go away, all of you!
- 52. Don't you know trespassing
is the same as stealing?
- 53. I'm sorry, monsieur.
I am Madame Tetrallini.
- 54. These children are in my circus.
- 55. Children? They're monsters.
- 56. Your circus. I understand.
- 57. So you see, monsieur,
when I get a chance...
- 58. I like to take them into the sunshine...
- 59. and let them play like... children.
- 60. That is what most of them are.
- 61. Children.
- 62. Children... children.
- 63. Please forget what was said, madame.
You are welcome to remain.
- 64. Au revoir. Come, Jean.
- 65. Thanks a thousand, monsieur.
- 66. A thousand thanks, monsieur.
- 67. Shame!
- 68. How many times have I told you
not to be frightened?
- 69. Have I not told you...
- 70. God looks after all his children?
- 71. - Good evening, Madame Tetrallini.
- How are you, Madame Tetrallini?
- 72. Big crowd tonight.
- 73. There she goes,
taking them out to exercise.
- 74. Nurse to a lot of mangy freaks.
- 75. "Just as they are represented
on the banners...
- 76. "you will see them on the inside.
- 77. "Living, breathing monstrosities.
- 78. "Josephine Joseph,
- 79. Have a cigar, Joseph.
- 80. You dropped your lipstick, Josephine.
- 81. Don't get her sore,
or he'll bust you in the nose.
- 82. Come on. Hurry up. That's a boy.
- 83. You're all wrong. I didn't do it.
- 84. What are you trying to do, be funny?
- 85. You just don't understand.
- 86. A Roman lady...
- 87. Getting off the bull
and scratching yourself.
- 88. Can't a Roman lady itch?
- 89. Why don't you take a bath?
- 90. I did, but it's the bull
that needs the bath.
- 91. I think she likes you...
- 92. but he don't.
- 93. Those flowers you sent to me,
they were beautiful.
- 94. But not much beautiful as you.
- 95. Thank you.
- 96. And Hans, I don't like to ask...
- 97. but may I have the loan
of another 1,000 francs...
- 98. until my money from Paris arrives?
- 99. - With pleasure, Fraulein.
- Thank you.
- 100. I'll bring it to your wagon tonight.
- 101. Forget it.
- 102. - Maybe I was just fooling.
- 103. "Come, little girl,
I want to take care of you."
- 104. And I fell for that.
- 105. Forget it.
- 106. So, you're quitting.
- 107. Is that it?
- 108. Maybe I'm only fooling.
- 109. You are not quitting me!
- 110. Because I'm kicking you out!
- 111. No, you don't. I gave you this.
- 112. Why, you cheap...
- 113. Don't you come around crying tonight,
trying to get back in.
- 114. I'm through wasting my time and money...
- 115. on things like you.
- 116. Yes. Your time, but my money.
- 117. Ungrateful little tramp.
- 118. That is fine.
- 119. What are you staring at?
- 120. Didn't you ever see a lady move before?
- 121. I guess you've been listening
to every word he said.
- 122. That's it.
- 123. Go ahead and laugh. It's funny, ain't it?
- 124. Yeah. Women are funny, ain't they?
- 125. They're all tramps, ain't they?
- 126. Yeah. Except when you can
get money from them.
- 127. I'll be...
- 128. Who do you think you are,
shooting off your head?
- 129. This is Phroso you're talking to.
- 130. Not any of those slugs
you've been chasing around with.
- 131. - Now, you listen to me.
- I didn't mean you.
- 132. - I had to take it out on somebody.
- Yeah, you dames are all alike.
- 133. You're sharpshooting, you're cheap...
- 134. and how you squeal when you get
what's coming to you.
- 135. Easy, kid. Cut it!
- 136. It's my own fault.
- 137. What gets me
so cockeyed sore at myself...
- 138. is that I fell for that big hunk of beef.
- 139. So you finally got wise
to yourself, did you?
- 140. The funny thing about you women is
most of you don't get wise soon enough.
- 141. You wait until you're so old,
nobody wants you.
- 142. Nobody does, most of the time.
- 143. You ought to be tickled to death
you're washed-up with him.
- 144. You're not so hard to look at.
- 145. Give yourself a tumble.
You'll make the grade.
- 146. - Your breaks is coming.
- Coming? Gone, you mean.
- 147. Now you'll sit there
feeling sorry for yourself.
- 148. No, I ain't.
Don't you ever accuse me of that.
- 149. All right.
- 150. But one thing, don't go out filling your
hide with booze, celebrating...
- 151. 'cause fun what's got that way
never done no one no good.
- 152. Get me?
- 153. I got you.
- 154. You're a pretty good kid.
- 155. You're darn right I am. You should have
caught me before my operation.
- 156. - Hello, Phroso.
- Well, well, well.
- 157. - Tomorrow night's the big night, Daisy?
- Yes, the sister's getting married.
- 158. - And I'm thrilled to death.
- She thrills at anything.
- 159. - Roscoe's a good kid.
- She's only joking.
- 160. She'll like him lots
after she knows him better.
- 161. That reminds me.
- 162. Close your eyes, Violet.
Go ahead, close them.
- 163. - What did I do?
- Pinched Daisy's arm.
- 164. What do you know about that?
- 165. Her master's voice is calling.
- 166. Getting fresh?
- 167. I don't like it one...
- 168. Come on, you'll have to hurry.
We haven't much time.
- 169. So you were flirting
with that cheap clown, were you?
- 170. - No, I wasn't.
- He was doing a trick with me.
- 171. You shut up.
- 172. I'm marrying your sister, not you.
- 173. - I saw him getting familiar with you.
- Come on, Daisy.
- 174. No, you don't.
She's going to stay right here.
- 175. No, she isn't. I got to go.
- 176. You're always using that for an...
- 177. For an alibi.
- 178. Where are you going?
- 179. You don't look at others so much, do you?
- 180. Yes, I have seen you.
- 181. So that's how it is.
- 182. You got to be caught.
- 183. Well?
- 184. Come on in.
- 185. Help yourself to a drink.
- 186. That is fine.
- 187. Feel like eating something?
- 188. Always.
- 189. Prosit.
- 190. How many?
- 191. I'm not very hungry. About six.
- 192. How do you like them?
- 193. Not bad.
- 194. But you are strong.
You are squeezing me to death.
- 195. And you'll like it.
- 196. You are taking my breath away.
- 197. You...
- 198. Now, here's something for your eye.
- 199. But, Hans, my Liebchen,
you have not been listening...
- 200. to a word I have been saying.
- 201. - Hans.
- Yes, Frieda?
- 202. - You have not been listening to me.
- Yes, I have, Frieda. I have.
- 203. Then what was I saying?
- 204. You were saying... What were you saying?
- 205. I was saying, tonight
you must not smoke such a big cigar.
- 206. Your voice was very bad
at tonight's show.
- 207. Please, Frieda, don't tell me what I do.
- 208. When I want a cigar, I smoke a cigar.
- 209. I want no orders from a woman.
- 210. This is the first time
since we have been engaged...
- 211. you have spoken to me so.
- 212. Why is it?
- 213. Friedchen, I'm sorry. I...
- 214. - Here's our coffee.
- There it is.
- 215. - Five lumps of sugar in each.
- What? Five lumps?
- 216. The little ape sent to Paris for this?
- 217. Yes, Paris. We're doing very well.
- 218. But I don't like fruit.
- 219. You should eat a lot. It's good for you.
- 220. Next time, I tell him I like champagne.
- 221. - Who is it?
- It's Hans.
- 222. - Who?
- It's Hans.
- 223. My darling,
your basket of fruit was lovely.
- 224. But I am... taking a bath now.
- 225. - Can't you come back later?
- Yes, Fraulein.
- 226. Thank you, dear.
- 227. You'll spoil everything if he hears you.
- 228. What's the matter?
You ain't singing as usual.
- 229. This morning
I have such a big washing to do.
- 230. How's Hans?
- 231. I said, how's Hans?
- 232. Hans is fine. Danke, he's fine.
- 233. Frieda, something's wrong. What is it?
- 234. Nothing. Only...
- 235. That Cleopatra woman... My Hans...
- 236. - I cannot tell it.
- She's still after Hans, ain't she?
- 237. Yeah. Always she's smiling by him.
- 238. Well, if she smiles by somebody I know...
- 239. she'll have to buy herself
a new set of teeth.
- 240. Why is it we women
always has got to worry?
- 241. It's always been that way.
I guess it always will be.
- 242. Yeah. And, by me, she has no shame.
- 243. Always, when I can hear it,
she says to him:
- 244. "Many thanks, my darling, for the flowers.
- 245. "Thanks, my darling," for this...
- 246. and "Thanks, my darling," for that.
- 247. Always something he has given her.
- 248. Don't you worry, Frieda.
He doesn't love her.
- 249. That big horse.
- 250. Yes, but she keeps after him.
- 251. That's why I worry.
- 252. Why not pink tights?
- 253. You know. With spangles all around.
It will show her figure off more.
- 254. Nein. No tights.
- 255. Without tights.
- 256. You know, that soft, flimsy,
- 257. Where the figure shows through.
- 258. Why not like Lady Godiva?
- 259. Ja, that's it. And I'll hire her
to ride the back of my bull.
- 260. Dummkopf! What have you
on your shoulder for heads?
- 261. Swill pails?
- 262. - What's the matter, Cleo?
- I think I strained my shoulder last night.
- 263. Give a rub, will you?
- 264. Farther.
- 265. Down.
- 266. Over.
- 267. It's so good to be rubbed.
- 268. - Our cards, lady.
- What for?
- 269. A couple of rubbers from Berlin.
- 270. You're not worthy to speak to a woman!
You belong on the street, you pigs!
- 271. That reminds me. I had a swell dream
about you last night.
- 272. - You did?
- 273. You were standing in a bathing suit
on a rock. You know, like a statue.
- 274. The wind was blowing through your hair,
the waves were washing around you.
- 275. And your figure. How it stood out.
It looked great.
- 276. Say, you have got a good figure.
- 277. Do you think so?
- 278. - Sure.
- 279. Did you try that gag I told you about?
- 280. Yeah, I did, and it was a wow.
Get up here, Johnny. I'll show it to you.
- 281. I did what you told me,
and it laid them right in the sawdust.
- 282. Watch this, Venus.
- 283. - Hello, Venus.
- Hello, Johnny.
- 284. Phroso, what else did you dream?
- 285. Then the dream changed. We was in Paris.
- 286. Paris?
- 287. Yeah, at the opera,
right in the front box.
- 288. - We were all dressed up.
- What did I have on?
- 289. And did I look swell.
Everybody was pointing at me.
- 290. They were saying,
"That's Phroso, the clown."
- 291. And was I embarrassed.
- 292. - Did they say anything about me?
- 293. - What did they say?
- Hit me.
- 294. Go ahead. Hit me.
- 295. On the head. Hit me.
- 296. That's how it is.
You don't think it's funny.
- 297. It's sad, is it? It will just panic them,
that's how sad it is.
- 298. No.
- 299. When? Come on!
- 300. Come on, Venus.
The bearded lady's baby's born!
- 301. - Ain't it cute? What is it?
- A girl.
- 302. Oh, boy, that's great.
And it's going to have a beard.
- 303. - How's the proud father?
- 304. - What was it?
- A girl.
- 305. Better luck next time.
You may get a couple of Smith Brothers.
- 306. I'm trying.
- 307. Please, Violet, don't quarrel
with him anymore.
- 308. If he's going to say anything,
let him say it.
- 309. Don't let him "p-p-p" for an hour.
- 310. You're going to do as I say.
I'm the boss of my home.
- 311. - Half of it, you mean.
- Please, Violet.
- 312. Listen here. I don't want
those tramps you go with...
- 313. hanging around my wife.
- 314. Be quiet. Hook up our dress.
- 315. If it isn't your dress I'm hooking up,
it's something else.
- 316. And another thing. You got to cut out
getting drunk every night, too.
- 317. - Is that so?
- 318. I'm not going to have my wife laying
in bed half the day with your hangover.
- 319. Daisy, let's get out of here.
- 320. No, she don't.
She's going to stay right here.
- 321. Come on. I got to go.
- 322. You're always using that for an...
For an alibi.
- 323. Cleopatra ain't one of us.
- 324. Why, we're just filthy things to her.
- 325. She'd spit on Hans
if he wasn't giving her presents.
- 326. Let her try it.
- 327. Let her try doing anything to one of us.
- 328. You're right.
- 329. She don't know us, but she'll find out.
- 330. There you are.
- 331. I peeked out of the corner of my eye...
- 332. and caught Madame Tetrallini
giving us the once-over.
- 333. I guess she knows she's got a good act.
One of the best in the business.
- 334. It isn't only our act that gets them.
- 335. We've got personality.
We know how to sell the stuff.
- 336. Same way in the last town.
Never heard such applause in your life.
- 337. Let me tell you something
that everybody around here don't know.
- 338. We're only killing time with this circus.
- 339. We've got bigger time to follow,
and we can do it, too.
- 340. Catch our act tomorrow night.
We got something new.
- 341. Yeah? Can you do anything
with your eyebrow?
- 342. Schlitze, what a pretty dress.
How beautiful you look tonight.
- 343. You're just a man's woman.
- 344. You know what I mean? You.
- 345. If you're a good girl, when I get
to Paris I'll buy you a big hat...
- 346. with a long, beautiful feather on it.
- 347. - Hello, Elvira.
- 348. Hello, Jennie Lee. Look.
- 349. Hasn't Schlitze got a beautiful dress?
Isn't that pretty?
- 350. When I get to Paris, I'm going to buy her
a big hat with a long feather on it.
- 351. And if you're good girls,
- 352. I'll buy you a hat
with a bigger feather on it.
- 353. Why, Schlitze, what's the matter?
- 354. I'm sorry, Schlitze.
- 355. Did you see him?
He was out there again tonight.
- 356. He followed you from the last town.
- 357. I know it, and if Eddie sees it,
there'll be a fight.
- 358. - It ain't your fault.
- There you are, Frances.
- 359. - Thought you'd gone to bed.
- Hello, Rollo.
- 360. Hear that crowd out there again tonight?
- 361. I bet you thought the tent was on fire.
Well, it wasn't.
- 362. Just the Rollo Brothers
panicking them again.
- 363. But then, we do it in every town.
- 364. We're so used to it,
it's getting monotonous.
- 365. You want to take a look
at our act tomorrow night.
- 366. Careful. Don't waste any of it.
- 367. - Look how it sparkles.
- Like your eyes.
- 368. Dancing, gay, like bubbles.
- 369. It's delicious.
- 370. Nice.
- 371. It comes by the finest vineyards of France.
- 372. And you sent for it especially for me?
- 373. For the most beautiful woman
in all the world.
- 374. Darling.
- 375. Hello there, baby.
Where have you been so long?
- 376. You're a funny guy, Phroso.
- 377. - Sometimes, you panic me.
- Don't I know it?
- 378. I panic the world because I use my noodle.
- 379. I think up funny gags.
I make the world laugh.
- 380. With me, clowning is an art.
- 381. Why the hat? The head cold?
- 382. - Thought you and me had a date to go out.
- I forgot all about it.
- 383. Well, I'm into this now.
I've got to go through with it.
- 384. Make it snappy, will you?
I'm all dolled up for the occasion.
- 385. Sorry, kid. Can't do it now.
- 386. We'll make it some other time.
- 387. Don't feel that way about it.
- 388. I just got this idea all of a sudden.
I've got to finish it.
- 389. - Funny gag, isn't it?
- Yeah, I'm laughing myself sick.
- 390. Come on.
- 391. Honey, come on.
- 392. Now, now.
- 393. That's much better.
- 394. That's the first time
you've ever done that.
- 395. - Ain't the first time I felt like doing it.
- 396. I don't mind telling you
I've wanted to do this for a long time.
- 397. - We're all set now, Venus?
- 398. - All set now.
- 399. Please do.
- 400. Don't you want to make me happy?
- 401. - Yes, but I don't know what to say.
- Just say yes, dear.
- 402. Will you?
- 403. - Yes.
- 404. What are your kicking about?
You've got a good wife. You're happy.
- 405. It's that sister-in-law of mine.
- 406. She wants to sit up half
the night, reading.
- 407. - That's tough.
- Tough? You...
- 408. - Good night, darling.
- Good night, Fraulein.
- 409. Cleo's gone on a diet.
- 410. - It's awfully sweet of you to say that.
- And I know Violet will be happy.
- 411. Here's Roscoe.
- 412. - Hello.
- Roscoe, this is Mr. Rogers.
- 413. Glad to meet you.
- 414. - Violet and he are engaged to be married.
- 415. Yes, and you must come
to see us sometime.
- 416. Thanks.
- 417. You must come to visit...
- 418. Come to see us sometime, too.
- 419. I certainly will. Thanks.
- 420. Who is it?
- 421. It's Frieda, Hans.
- 422. May I come in?
- 423. Yes, Frieda.
- 424. Now that I'm here,
I don't know how to say it...
- 425. how to make you understand.
- 426. If you knew how I feel, Hans...
- 427. to come to you about her.
- 428. Frieda, I'm so sorry.
- 429. I don't want to hurt you,
but ich kann es nicht helfen.
- 430. If you could be happy, Hans...
- 431. I would not care.
- 432. But I am happy, Frieda.
Never in my life was I so happy.
- 433. No, Hans. You think it only.
- 434. For you, she cannot bring happiness.
- 435. Frieda, you don't know.
- 436. But I do, Hans.
- 437. You think because she's so beautiful
and I'm just—
- 438. Don't, Hans. Please.
- 439. To me, you're a man.
- 440. But to her,
you're only something to laugh at.
- 441. The whole circus.
They make fun by you and her.
- 442. Let them laugh. The swine.
- 443. I love her. They can't hurt me.
- 444. But they hurt me.
- 445. Frieda, I have been a coward.
- 446. I should have come to you
in the beginning.
- 447. Please forgive me.
- 448. Yes, Hans, I forgive you.
- 449. It is only that you should be happy I want.
- 450. You won't worry now, will you?
- 451. No, I won't worry.
- 452. Nice. Very nice.
- 453. It's platinum.
- 454. Say, where do you think
that little polliwog is getting his money?
- 455. Listen at him. Getting so particular.
- 456. What do you care
where the money comes from?
- 457. How much it's worth?
- 458. We got $500 for the bracelet,
but this looks like thousands.
- 459. I think next time I'll take a fur coat.
- 460. Say, that little ape's got ideas about you.
- 461. - Jealous?
- 462. I'd squish him like a bug.
- 463. That's his knock.
I'll get rid of him. Go quickly.
- 464. Come in.
- 465. What do you want?
- 466. It's about Hans.
- 467. Well? I'm listening.
- 468. It's behind his back.
- 469. Everybody's laughing
because he's in love with you.
- 470. Go on.
- 471. I know you just make fun...
- 472. but Hans, he does not know this.
- 473. If he finds out...
- 474. never again will he be happy.
- 475. What makes you think
that I am just making fun?
- 476. You're big. So beautiful—
- 477. And Hans is so little...
- 478. so cute.
- 479. Well, maybe I'm going to marry him.
- 480. If you marry,
it will be at you they laugh and stare.
- 481. That's good. Nothing like being different.
- 482. Cleopatra...
- 483. queen of the air, married to a dwarf.
- 484. - A dwarf.
- A dwarf!
- 485. Then it's not for Hans you care.
- 486. - It's the money.
- 487. You little mind reader.
- 488. He has told you
of the fortune he has inherited.
- 489. Always he swear to me...
- 490. to tell no one
until after we leave the circus.
- 491. A fortune?
- 492. And fancy you knowing about it, too.
- 493. Well, I can't be angry at him for that.
- 494. No. You cannot do this.
- 495. You wait and see.
- 496. Please. You can't.
- 497. A fortune.
I bet the little ape's worth billions!
- 498. A fortune. Can you beat that?
- 499. A fortune. And I have him like that.
- 500. Shrewd little Hans.
He knew enough to keep his mouth shut.
- 501. I could marry him.
- 502. Yes, he would marry me.
- 503. Midgets are not strong.
- 504. He could get sick.
- 505. How?
- 506. It could be done...
- 507. Slowly.
- 508. Come on, my little precious.
Come on, let's drink.
- 509. Big, happy drink. Come on.
- 510. Quiet! Please be quiet.
- 511. Hey, Koo Koo,
give somebody else a chance.
- 512. All right!
- 513. All right, professor.
- 514. A waltz, please.
- 515. Show him up, Volcano. Burn him up.
- 516. Our wedding night.
- 517. What a thrill.
- 518. Never before did I think
I should be so lucky.
- 519. Lucky?
- 520. I am the lucky one.
- 521. My little Hans.
- 522. My Cleo's happy.
- 523. - Happy.
- 524. I am so happy.
- 525. I even could kiss you,
you big, homely brute.
- 526. My little green-eyed monster.
- 527. My husband is jealous.
- 528. He loves me.
- 529. Salopard.
- 530. Come, my little lover.
- 531. Drink to the happiness of your loving wife.
- 532. Attention!
- 533. We'll make her one of us.
- 534. A loving cup.
- 535. We accept her, one of us
- 536. Gooble gobble,
- 537. We accept her
- 538. Gooble gobble,
- 539. One of us
- 540. They're going to make you one of them.
- 541. Gooble gobble, gooble gobble
We accept her!
- 542. One of us!
- 543. They're going to make you one of them,
- 544. You dirty...
- 545. slimy freaks!
- 546. Get out of here!
- 547. You! Out!
- 548. Get out! You heard her! Get out!
- 549. You filth!
- 550. Make me one of you, will you?
- 551. Well, what are you going to do?
- 552. What are you, a man or a baby?
- 553. Please. You make me ashamed.
- 554. Ashamed. You?
- 555. Holy jumping Christmas!
- 556. What must I do?
Must I play games with you?
- 557. Must mama take you horsy-back ride?
- 558. That's it. Horsy-back ride.
- 559. Come, my little flyspeck.
- 560. Mama is going to take you
- 561. - Come on.
- 562. Forget it, Hans.
- 563. She is sorry. I'm sorry.
- 564. Didn't I told you she was drunk?
- 565. Didn't I told you
we was only having a little fun?
- 566. Please.
- 567. I understand.
- 568. - Everything.
- No, you don't.
- 569. I tell you,
there's nothing between me and Cleo.
- 570. Be quiet.
- 571. Haven't you done
enough damage for one night?
- 572. Don't you realize
what I'm being accused of?
- 573. I ain't going to be blamed
for something I have not done.
- 574. I don't blame you, Cleo.
- 575. I don't blame Hercules.
- 576. Only me.
- 577. Myself.
- 578. Now you're talking.
- 579. - Talking like a man.
- You fool.
- 580. Always I should have known...
- 581. you would only laugh at me.
- 582. My sweet, I'd rather fall from the trapeze
and break my neck...
- 583. than hurt your feelings.
- 584. Do you understand now? It was only joke.
- 585. Our wedding...
- 586. a joke?
- 587. Now I know how funny it is.
- 588. Hans the midget.
- 589. Hans... the fool!
- 590. Through the divorce court - they'll laugh.
- 591. Everywhere, they're laughing.
- 592. - You give him too much.
- No, I haven't.
- 593. I know what I am doing.
- 594. Come on, pick him up.
- 595. Doctor, what is it?
- 596. What caused it?
- 597. Poison.
- 598. A very bad case of ptomaine poisoning.
- 599. Doctor, did I do wrong, then?
- 600. Giving him mustard water?
- 601. No. Probably saved his life.
- 602. Never before did he drink like that...
- 603. but she kept making him,
and making him.
- 604. Drink?
- 605. You better get Cleo to tell the doctor
what she put in that wine last night.
- 606. - What you're talking about?
- The stuff she put in the wine.
- 607. You're crazy.
- 608. You can't get away with it.
I'll tell the coppers.
- 609. So, tell on your own people?
- 610. My people are decent circus folks.
- 611. Not dirty rats what would kill a freak
to get his money.
- 612. You dirty little...
- 613. Your imagination's getting the best of you.
- 614. Yeah, maybe it is.
- 615. But coppers don't have imaginations,
so I've been told.
- 616. Don't make me have to go to them.
- 617. - Cleo.
- 618. It has been a week tonight...
- 619. since we have been married.
- 620. A week, since I have said...
- 621. - all those things to you.
- 622. Never can I forgive myself
for what I've said.
- 623. I've forgotten it.
- 624. Nothing matters except for you to be well.
- 625. So good you are by me, Cleo.
- 626. I must fix your medicine, or I'll be late.
- 627. I'll be soon back, my little.
- 628. Don't be lonely.
- 629. I'll never forget
what you are doing for me, Cleo.
- 630. But it's what I want to do, my darling.
- 631. Now I must hurry.
- 632. - Cleo.
- 633. Will you leave the door open, please?
- 634. Yes, my darling.
- 635. - Tonight.
- They will be ready.
- 636. All right. You come to my wagon.
- 637. "I must hurry now
and fix your medicine, my darling...
- 638. "or I will be late."
- 639. "Dirty...
- 640. "slimy freaks."
- 641. - He's waiting.
- 642. Soon we go.
- 643. - You're imagining things.
- 644. Then I hear Hercules tell Cleo:
"Venus knows too much."
- 645. - Hercules? Venus?
- 646. Thanks, Frieda.
- 647. My little, you must go to sleep.
- 648. Your friends better go now.
- 649. - I like them here.
- No, Hans.
- 650. They can come back tomorrow.
- 651. I will give you your medicine
and get you off to sleep.
- 652. Go on, all of you. Quick.
- 653. - What's this?
- Give me that little black bottle.
- 654. Bottle.
- 655. You got this bottle of poison... to kill.
- 656. Phroso!
- 657. Get out, Venus!
- 658. Do I have to bust you in the jaw
to make you get out?
- 659. Get out, Venus!
- 660. Help me!
- 661. Mrs. T!
- 662. Help! Please, help!
- 663. How she got that way
will never be known.
- 664. Some say a jealous lover. Others...
- 665. that it was the code of the freaks.
- 666. Others, the storm.
- 667. Believe it or not, there she is.
- 668. But, sir, they insist on seeing you.
- 669. In all these years, I've seen no one.
- 670. Have I not told you that?
- 671. - Send them away.
- Very good, sir.
- 672. - I can't see no one.
- Excuse me, sir. You can't come in.
- 673. - No, sir. I have my orders.
- Who's going to stop me? I'm in, ain't I?
- 674. Yes, you can, Hansie, old boy.
- 675. There's someone you've just got to see.
- 676. Why did you come here?
- 677. Please, Hans. Don't be angry.
- 678. Venus and Phroso have been
so kind by me.
- 679. Please go away.
- 680. I can see no one.
- 681. But, Hans, you tried to stop them.
- 682. It was only the poison you wanted.
- 683. It wasn't your fault.
- 684. Don't cry, Hans.
- 685. Come to me, my Liebchen.
- 686. Don't cry.
- 687. Don't, Hans.
- 688. Don't cry.
- 689. I love you.
